“I paint both a conscience subject such as landscape inspired by the fragmented prisms of light passing through branches and encased in water and atmosphere and subconscious work derived from letters to my son. I often write, sometimes for days… The letters soon take on shapes and forms. I see these a ‘subconscious eye.’ I have noticed over many years repeating symbols such as wheels on characters or often red shoes—although unintentional, these do have deep personal meaning. There, too, are paintings in which both derivatives of source combine.” – Debra Carpenter
